"The fundamental issue is do people get to vote or not?"

Dems can eliminate filibuster to pass HR1 & John Lewis Voting Rights Act to stop GOP voter suppression

Or they can allow GOP to undermine democracy for next decade

Stakes couldn't be higher

Klobuchar calls the GOP’s assault on voting rights “the defining issue of the year.” She adds, “We had an insurrection at the Capitol with rioters who were trying to literally dismantle our democracy. The fundamental issue is do people get to vote or not and are we going to make it easy for them to vote or are we going to put up barriers to make it impossible?”

After being passed in the House on a party-line vote, the measure is expected to be blocked once again by Republicans in the Senate—that is, unless Senate Democrats eliminate the filibuster, which would require a supermajority of 60 votes for passage. In the 50–50 divided Senate, it is highly improbable that the Democrats will be able to win over 10 GOP votes to defeat a Republican filibuster. So a Senate clash over HR 1 is likely to become a key front in the ongoing battle over the Senate filibuster. And Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), a chief sponsor of the voting rights legislation, tells me she supports killing the filibuster to pass this legislation.

“I would get rid of the filibuster,” Klobuchar says. “I have favored filibuster reform for a long time and now especially for this critical election bill.”

Republicans in disarray

CPAC Headline Should Be: A Third Of CPAC Republicans Do NOT Want HIM To Run Again.

The headline coming out of #CPAC will be that 55% of hardcore Republicans would vote for Trump if he ran in 2024, but the actual headline should be that a third of those same CPAC Republicans said they do *not* want Trump to run again.

LOL

Imagining Jimmy Carter, in February 1981, addressing some gathering of Iowa Democrats and talking about how he’s not getting enough credit for freeing the hostages.

"Low energy" so sad.

Lol. He's just ambling around the stage through every verse of "I'm proud to be an American..." And the crowd is pretty low energy...

His big comeback is in a shitty, hotel meeting hall only half full with some very tired conventioneers ready to go home.
